Nice to meet you!
I'm Karissa Pearlstone (she/her), your favorite bookish sommelier.You're most likely to find me on my back deck reading an enemies to lovers rom com and drinking something tannic enough that I don't have to share.You're probably wondering about credentials... I'm a Level 1 Sommelier with the Court of Master Sommeliers and hold a Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing. But my real claim to fame is the Goosebumps fan fic I wrote when I was seven.
